? The Prize ?
2 day of walking in the Lake District with a mountain and expedition leader. As well as completing a mountain journey, the leader will give an introduction to international trekking and cover some key topics from what to expect in a teahouse to fitness and training plans.
It will also be a chance for people to test out and discuss kit requirements for their trips. There is also the opportunity to talk about the differences and requirements for GAC trips – e.g. the difference between Kilimanjaro and Everest Basecamp.

The exact walking routes will be decided to factor in weather and group make-up, expect 7-8 hours walking on the Saturday, taking in some peaks, and a slightly shorter walk on the Sunday, to allow for onward travel.

Notes: Accommodation and food are not included in the prize. (Participants will need to meet each morning in Keswick and come with a packed lunch).
